Zbigniew Brzezinski: how Jimmy Carter and I started the Mujahadeen.

Posted by on

Interview of Zbigniew Brzezinski, Le Nouvel Observateur (France), Jan 15-21, 1998, p. 76*

Q: The former director of the CIA, Robert Gates, stated in his memoirs ["From the Shadows"], that American intelligence services began to aid the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan 6 months before the Soviet intervention. In this period you were the national security adviser to President Carter. You therefore played a role in this affair. Is that correct?

Brzezinski: Yes. According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise: Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And that very day, I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention.

Q: Despite this risk, you were an advocate of this covert action. But perhaps you yourself desired this Soviet entry into war and looked to provoke it?

Brzezinski: It isn’t quite that. We didn’t push the Russians to intervene, but we knowingly increased the probability that they would.

Q: When the Soviets justified their intervention by asserting that they intended to fight against a secret involvement of the United States in Afghanistan, people didn’t believe them. However, there was a basis of truth. You don’t regret anything today?

Brzezinski: Regret what? That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it? The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter: We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war. Indeed, for almost 10 years, Moscow had to carry on a war unsupportable by the government, a conflict that brought about the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet empire.

Q: And neither do you regret having supported the Islamic [integrisme], having given arms and advice to future terrorists?

Brzezinski: What is most important to the history of the world? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some stirred-up Moslems or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war?

Q: Some stirred-up Moslems? But it has been said and repeated: Islamic fundamentalism represents a world menace today.

Brzezinski: Nonsense! It is said that the West had a global policy in regard to Islam. That is stupid. There isn’t a global Islam. Look at Islam in a rational manner and without demagoguery or emotion. It is the leading religion of the world with 1.5 billion followers. But what is there in common among Saudi Arabian fundamentalism, moderate Morocco, Pakistan militarism, Egyptian pro-Western or Central Asian secularism? Nothing more than what unites the Christian countries.

* There are at least two editions of this magazine; with the perhaps sole exception of the Library of Congress, the version sent to the United States is shorter than the French version, and the Brzezinski interview was not included in the shorter version.

And now, for Operation Cyclone:

Operation Cyclone was the code name for the United States Central Intelligence Agency program to arm, train, and finance the Afghan mujahideen during the Soviet war in Afghanistan, 1979 to 1989. The program leaned heavily towards supporting militant Islamic groups that were favored by neighboring Pakistan, rather than other, less ideological Afghan resistance groups that had also been fighting the Marxist-oriented Democratic Republic of Afghanistan regime since before the Soviet intervention.


Of course we don't think about anybody who got injured, killed or somehow maimed by intervening Soviet forces! Brzezinski didn't think about all that! Why? There are good wars, aren't they?!


We Pakistanis defeated the USSR in the war alongside the United States and other allies.
end of story.

At what cost?

There was really no effort for a peaceful handover of power in Libya either. There was a desire to kill, and break the civil governance costing us. It may have only costed 1 billion but if we really cared so much about 1500 protesters in the hellish Eastern Libya, then where have we been amidst all the other worldwide violence?

The whole NATO thing was a concerted effort to get investors in there and make money. Humanity and comparative human cost around the world were not factors at all. Just like the thousands of Yazidis, 200K+ Syrians, billions invested in Iraq which has now all been wasted. The collective wisdom of past foreign policy has gone into hiding and no one has any enthusiasm left for Neo-conservative or democratic globalist ie extremely violent and expensive interventionism and idealism.

There isn't in the whole world a hypocrite administration like the US,

When the US helped the pakistan , after a while the country has been conquered by US forces like the parasites,

After the faked events of 11/09/2001, the US found a good shield (Argument) to hide behind, it is the PreTendeD waR against the terr0rists) this shield has given the US administration the ultime priority to do everything, it was the introduction of conquering many countries which swarm with the Oil

When the US want to capture Sadam Hussein in Iraq in the faked aim to help Iraq, after a very short time the US conquered the Iraq like the Crusade of 21 century

You dont need to know what is the aim of all that because I'm sure that you know as well & maybe more than me !
